Thanks to President Ronald Reagan, who had an affinity for ice cream, July is national ice cream month. In 1984 he made it official by designating July 15th as “National Ice Cream Day.” How yummy is that!
There’s something so nostalgic about ice cream. Whenever I see pistachio or maple walnut ice cream I think of my dad who visited Friendly’s on a weekly basis for a cold scoop or two, in a sugar cone of course. Most people have positive associations with the rich frozen treat, making ice cream the ultimate comfort food.
I’ll take any excuse for a celebratory scoop, so this month I’m indulging.
Some of my favorite ice creams include Ben & Jerry’s Greek Raspberry Fudge Chunk, Lick’s Hill Country Honey & Vanilla Bean and Melt’s Mint –to-Be.
As a no-fat option (it’s still swimsuit season), I’m jazzing up my lipstick menu with ice cream-colored options. Craving strawberry? Pucker up with Susan Posnick’s COLORESSENTIAL lipstick in Shanghai or LA. Prefer orange sherbet? Opt for Miami or Boca.
Summer is the perfect time to take a risk with lip colors. One of my favorite looks is wearing pastel eye shadow colors with COLOREYEDEFINE rose quartz/smokey quartz, with a bold lipstick for a hot summertime statement.
Unlike a bowl of ice cream, COLORESSENTIAL’s vitamin rich lipstick is calorie-free and long lasting. Count me in.
